COACHE Report on Faculty Job Satisfaction

In 2023, Brooklyn College is partnering with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) to survey tenured and tenure-track faculty about satisfaction across areas of faculty life: teaching, scholarship, service, academic leadership, governance, and work-life balance. The survey had been previously administered at Brooklyn College in 2015 and 2019. As a part of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, COACHE is a research-practice partnership with peer institutions focused on providing strategic insights for the academic workplace.

The survey results provide a snapshot and an occasion for conversation, deliberation, and planning. COACHE explains, “Academic leaders use COACHE results to focus attention, spot successes and weaknesses, and then take concrete steps to make policies and practices more effective and more prevalent.” A COACHE Task Force has been charged to share the results in an open manner and to provide opportunities for faculty engagement to better understand questions raised by the results. May the conversation continue.

Brooklyn. All in.
